Over the Hump (Day)

A daughter is a day brightener and a heart warmer. ~ Author Unknown

It was a crazy day yesterday, starting off with taking DD to the doctor early in the a.m. for her yearly check up (which got me to thinking -- I don't think I ever went to the doctor unless I was sick or hurt when I was younger ... did you?). We used to be up and around much earlier than we are now, and yesterday was worse because DH would NOT get up so it put us all behind.

In any case, last year DD was borderline "overweight", but this year her BMI is down into the healthy range (yay). She's TALL: almost 5' 2" (of course, I'm 5'9" and my DH is 6'2", so DD is going to be tall) and healthy. She had two vaccinations: a tetanus shot with a whooping cough booster (apparently whooping cough is in an upswing) and meningitis. One in each shoulder. Which gave my drama queen daughter reason to be unable to carry anything ("my arms hurt") and do much cupping of her shoulders and long sighs....

Still, I got the nicest compliment from one of the ladies in agility about DD. She mentioned how sweet, and grown-up and well-behaved DD is. Said, "She's a really good kid."

Yes, yes she is. Thanks.


It also snowed yesterday for a good part of the morning. It didn't stick here, but up north? Oh yeah. This link to WMUR has photos if you're interested.

Funniest part is it's going to be really quite warm this weekend -- into the 70s. Crazy weather. Three weeks until I can plant safely, but I'm going to finish hand tilling the garden this weekend, and will plant my cold crops (peas, spinach, etc) and may put out some of my soft crops under their milk jug greenhouses. I'm so ready.


Writing is going okay -- I've had a couple more epiphanies for "Now and Forever" so am hoping to get work done on that some more today. We're bringing on Admin help over at LASR/WC/Aurora so that will hopefully help free up a little time for me once she's up to speed.

I want something contracted this year. It's my main writing goal...


You Are Highly Authentic

You're as real as they come... and quite modest too.

You are very self-assured, and you have a healthy amount of self-esteem.

You feel confident that you can take on the world.

You are have a great sense of humor, especially when it comes to laughing at yourself.

Mostly right.

Hope the weather remains nice for a while.

You Are Highly Inspiring
You believe that your life has a higher purpose, and you do all you can to achieve it.
You are wise, and a lot of your wisdom comes from self discipline.

You try to live as moderately and modestly as possible.
You make room for rational, small indulgences... while living as ethically as you can.

Re the weather, I think Mother Nature has lost her mind.
